UIB at the IBA SUMMIT
On September 15th, 2012, one day before the start of the iba fair in Munich, the IBA SUMMIT was held on the Exposition Center, and key speakers on different issues (from prevention of chronic diseases over food safety, energy-efficiency, connected innovation, the battle food vs. fuel to new trends in the international baking trade) met decision-makers from across the globe and had the chance to discuss current topics and burning issues with each other.
During the IBA SUMMIT, The Hon. John Dalli, EU Commissioner for Health and Consumer Policy, was presented the first-ever granted UIB Honorary Award. This Award is aimed at rewarding, either a person or an Institution, that has shown merit in his or its work for the benefit of bakers worldwide and was unanimously agreed to Mr. Dalli, further to the proposal of both the President of the UIB and the President of the CEBP (European Confederation of Bakers and Confectioners).
